The goal for teams participating in the event is to raise a minimum of $1,000 towards the $80,000 fundraising goal for Spin for Schools. 100% of proceeds help fund the 40+ programs the Foundation supports in the district.

Michelle Ginn, the Foundation’s CEO, encourages everyone from the community to come to the event with their family and friends.

“Spin for Schools is a high energy, fun, family event. It’s a great day for our schools, local businesses, and community to spin and support our Carlsbad public schools!”

About the Carlsbad Educational Foundation

The Carlsbad Educational Foundation (CEF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in 1983, to raise private support for public education and contribute to the enrichment of nearly 11,000 students in the Carlsbad Unified School District. Since its inception, the foundation has contributed more than $9 million in funds to Carlsbad public schools, primarily for science, technology, and music – programs that would not be possible in California’s current school funding environment. 100% of donations go directly to support the Carlsbad Unified School District because CEF’s operating expenses are covered by student enrichment programs and Kids Care, a comprehensive before and after-school K-5 childcare program.
